Last week, Derek Fisher was waived by the Dallas Mavericks after getting injured. Fish apparently requested to be waived and headed back to L.A. to spend time with his family.
This has obviously sparked some questions from Laker fans wondering if the team would be interested in bringing back D-Fish.
Apparently, the Lakers don’t have any interest in the five-time champion – or Kenyon Martin, randomly – according to Marc J. Spears:
Lakers aren’t interested in opening a roster spot to acquire Derek Fisher, Kenyon Martin or any other free agent, a source told Y! Sports.

This isn’t really much of a surprise, seeing as Fish doesn’t exactly fit into D’Antoni’s run-n-gun offense.
It also seems that the team is content with the squad they have right now, as they should be, seeing as they don’t want to bring in any other free agents.
With the Lakers winning their last five games, it makes no sense to mess with things when the team is finally starting to get on the right track.
